The U.S. is home to 21.8 million military veterans. These are men and women who once served in combat, war or during peacetime in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force or Coast Guard. They are found in every state of the nation and live among us as family, friends, neighbors, employers and employees. Today is Veterans Day; a day specifically devoted to the men and women who once wore a military uniform. Veterans Day remains a vital, important part of our nation’s history.
